Fresh water is essential for health, as well as for sustainable economic development, agriculture, food security and support for biodiversity of the ecosystem. Yet sadly, it is estimated that by 2030, global demand for water will exceed supply. Water shortage gravely endangers the health of the environment, humanity and all life on our planet.

This online summit on the Rainwater Harvesting Initiative will feature a keynote address by His Holiness Vishwaguruji Paramhans Swami Maheshwarananda, who will speak about the wisdom and spiritual traditions of water use, according to the ancient Indian science of Yoga and Vedic culture.

Distinguished speakers will tell the story of the Rainwater Harvesting Initiative, and speak about pathways toward a paradigm shift in human regard for water that reflects our shared responsibility to protect and preserve oceans and waterways for the welfare of all living beings.
